Guidance on Vaccine Storage and Handling 25 Sep 2013

This guidance sets out a framework outlining the minimum standards that are required for storage and handling of vaccines thereby minimising the risk of compromising the effectiveness of vaccines given to patients. This document updates the guidance on vaccine storage and handling issued by Health Protection Scotland in 2010 and supplements the recommendations in Chapter 3 of Immunisation against Infectious Disease 2006 (the Green Book).

The guidance is aimed at all staff and healthcare professionals in Scotland who are involved with the planning or delivery of immunisation programmes in all care settings.
